Stimulus Chairman Earl Devaney to Retire

Earl Devaney

Earl Devaney, chairman of the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, is submitting his resignation to the White House with plans to retire, according to the Washington Post.

He told the Post that after 41 years of service to four federal agencies he plans to move to Florida with his wife and work part-time on a corporate board or as an consultant.

In his role, Devaney oversaw a team of 50 auditors and investigators who keeps track of every recipient who received federal stimulus money. The website operated by the RATB, Recovery.gov, consists of information on stimulus spending and the recipients who receive it.

“You can’t overestimate the value of putting stimulus data on a Web site where people could go on and put in their ZIP code and see where that money was supposed to be in their neighborhood and then opine on that — good, bad or indifferent,” Devaney told the Post.

Devaney’s career consists of federal roles including working for the Secret Service, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Interior Department.
